Since 1995
We are Buenaventura, a graphic design studio based in Granada (Southern Spain) with focus on visual identity, packaging and editorial design since 1995.
We believe in simplicity, harmony and honesty in design to unveil the true essence of any product, concept or brand we may work with.
We imagine messages and communication tools that allow our clients to be better perceived in their markets, generating experiences aligned with the message that is intended to be transmitted in each case. In so doing, they shall achieve greater prestige and recognition, with the aim of increasing their commercial transactions and profitability.
In each project, not only graphic designers are involved, but also consumer behavior specialists, sales directors, market development professionals and international trade experts. This multidisciplinary approach helps to transform the artistic design into a tool to achieving tangible and measurable results.
We live & work in the very heart of Andalusia, surrounded by real nature; a place full of light where the Mediterranean character confers a unique way of life.
We are longing to live in a more balanced environment, based on the real essence of things, purer and more functional.
